Welcome back to Open the Voice Gate - Rewind and Rewatch, where Case (https://twitter.com/_inyourcase) and Mike (https://twitter.com/fujiiheya) are Rewinding and Rewatching the Dragon Gate USA era of shows.
DGUSA’s concludes 2013, their last full calendar year, with Freedom Fight 2013 from the cursed Brooklyn Lyceum in New York on 11/17/2013!
Before getting into today’s episode, Case and Mike have to jump to Japan to talk about the fall of 2013, including the most brain-melting Unit Shuffle of Dragon System history, the conclusion of World 1 International and Akatsuki, and the birth of generation two of Mad Blankey and the new super face unit, Monster Express. As well they talk about PWG’s late 2013 which formed the true basis of their most recent boom.
Case and Mike then talk about Freedom Fight 2013, the longest show in the history of DGUSA from Mike’s least favorite venue in the history of WWN. The main event is Johnny Gargano defending the Open the Freedom Gate against newly returning to the indies Chris Hero. As well we have the “The Roast of Johnny Gargano, presented by Johnny Gargano”, The Young Bucks vs Masaaki Mochizuki & AR Fox, Rich Swann vs Trent, Ricochet vs Anthony Nese and Chuck Taylor vs Jimmy Susumu.
The timeline/news update is from 00:07:34 until 00:48:54.
